Rare school visit to Roseville College

Adobe Senior Director in Rare School Visit to Roseville College


Rare school visit to Roseville College

In  Australia for EduTech in Brisbane, Mr Forta spent a day in Sydney and Melbourne before returning to the USA.

Roseville College was the only School he and Dr Kitchen visited while in Sydney. The College was chosen because two of its teachers, Mrs Abi Woldhuis and Mrs Henrietta Miller, are active members of the Adobe Education Leadership programs.

According to Dr Kitchen, a visit from an Adobe executive as senior as Mr Forta is rare. "It's not often that someone as senior from Adobe comes to Australia, so we are making the most of this week with him," says Dr Kitchen.

"Ben's main focus for this trip is to research and explore how Adobe's new free touch apps are being used in Australian schools, in particular Adobe Voice and Adobe Slate," he says, explaining that Adobe Voice is a creative way of telling stories and presentations with voice overs, images, text and music, whereas Adobe Slate builds beautiful websites that are hosted for free.

"It was exciting to demonstrate how our easy-to-use and free iPad apps, like Adobe Voice, Adobe Slate or Adobe Clip, are revolutionising how teachers and students learn and communicate," says Dr Kitchen.

Roseville College teacher for Innovation, Mrs Abi Woldhuis, says the visit is exciting for Roseville College, which continually pursues innovative ways to engage girls in learning and discovery. She says while technology shouldn't be used for "technology's sake", there are many great technology resources available to enhance teaching and learning.

"Ben spent much of his day in Sydney with Roseville College, meeting staff and students in Senior and Junior Schools to share ideas and explore how Adobe can continue to deliver great technology that is relevant and pertinent to schools, and helps train the next generation with skills that will set them up well for future learning and life in general," she says.
